    Toyota says don't change it under normal driving conditions, but the amount of miles you have on your tranny. I would, wouldn't hurt. Lucas came out with this tranny conditioner. I put that in my tranny and I notice a difference, It's really smooth now. When you do get your tranny exchange and filled to spec, after that Just got get a bottle and pour it in your tranny. Lucas says one bottle will not harm your tranny.

    might be easier to access it if you take the tire off and go from inside the fender well
    thats how i did my starter and it made things way easier
